in the u.s. >> jim, how significant is it that bp is naming an american to head the company? >> reporter: i think it's very significant, bob dudley's been around for a very long time. he was at amoco, if you recall amoco was taken over by bp in a merger in 1998. he went to -- grew up in mississippi so he knows that region very well. he has been in the gulf on and off during this whole oil spill. went to smu, university of illinois. so he is very much well known in the u.s. and they are hoping that as this first non-british ceo that he can repair bp's damage. he's got a on in his hands, as you say. they are setting aside $32.5 billion to clean up the oil spill. there will probably need to be more money as well. there is the issue of selling more than $30 billion worth of u.s. assets. that will be one of the many things on bob dudley's plate. >> jim boulden in london, thank you so much. >>> in 25 minutes we'll get a never-before-seen interview with outgoing ceo tony hayward, conducted in the early days of the disaster in the gulf. david matti intingly is prepari report. >>> pr
